ABSTRACT
The essential oil isolated from the leaves and peel of Cretan origin Citrus medica, var. 'Diamante,' was analyzed by combination GC and GC/MS. Twenty-seven and 29 components were identified in the leaf and peel oils, respectively. Limonene was the major constituent in the oil of leaf and peel, while the content of the other constituents varied. The oxygenated monoterpene geranial, neral, geranyl acetate, neryl acetate and the monoterpenic hydrocarbon myrcene followed. Significant differences among oil components from citron leaves and peel were observed. Research was carried out to determine the aroma profile of citron oil constituents as a contribution in the species taxonomy.
